Dark Kings Series:

Book 1:

Dark Craving: Hal and Cassandra Hunter

Click here to Get to Amazon page: Donna Grant - Dark Craving (Dark Kings)
Fueled by ancient magic—and enflamed by human desire—the Dragon King known as Hal can transform himself at will into one of the legendary winged creatures he is sworn to protect. But one thing he can never do is fall in love…with a mortal woman.
Searching for her brother in Scotland—and succumbing to the freezing cold—Cassie Hunter awakens to find herself in the arms of a magnificent Highland warrior. Across his chest is the tattoo of a fiery dragon. And in his heart is a burning passion that, once unleashed, will consume them both…body and soul.
This is a story of destiny and desire, magic and mystery, warriors and lovers.
These are the forbidden cravings of the Dark Kings.
First I want to warn you, that this series is an eBook exclusive so these are not available in print. It is also a short, about 100 pages or so, but Grant makes every page count.
Cassandra has basically been alone most of her life, after a series of hardships she moves to Scotland to be closer to her brother, her only family. When her luggage is lost than her brother ditches her at the airport, and forces his massive dog on her and then forgets to give her the code to the cottage where she is sitting in the driveway freezing to death. She is truly having the worst day EVER! She is wondering if moving to Scotland is the worst mistakes she ever made.
Cassie wakes up not dead and on the couch of her brother’s cottage, but she has no idea how she got there. Enter out sexy, brooding, mysterious hero Hal! Hal and Cassie meet and instantly the sparks fly, Hal can’t figure out how Cassie has gotten past the spell that all Dragon Kings are under. And Cassie is left breathless and wondering how this sexy man got past all of her defenses with just one look, let alone the earth shattering kiss. Grant, gets this book started off on the right foot and sets the pace for the rest of the book. Through the entire book you are hit with romance, excitement, betrayal and secrets. Grant does not let up through to the last page.
Cassie and Hal’s attraction is intense from the very beginning; they both struggle with the feelings at first. But as the days pass, Hal becomes more and more attaches until he is ready to fight his “brothers” for Cassie. He doesn’t know what is going on with himself, or why their Dragon magic is failing, but he knows he can’t give up Cassie. He tells Cassie he wants her with everything that is in him but he has secrets he cannot share. Cassie agrees to be with him anyway, and just like that everything he thought not possible is now a possibility. Hal is sexy, mysterious, protective and puts his woman first, even above his fellow dragons. He is the quintessential alpha male and a dragon to boot! Are dragons ever not alphas?! I quite enjoyed Hal and all of his fellow dragons. Cassie, is so accepting of Hal and everything that he is or isn’t even faced with secrets she realizes that she can either accept them and him or give Hal up forever and that is just not a possibility for her. She might not have known him long but he quickly became someone that truly mattered to her. I adored Cassie she had such a warm heart! There was one thing that I didn’t like and that was we never met the brother until the very end, what a dick! He knew his sister needed him and he left her alone in a strange country. I highly suggest picking this book up! It is a great quick read and cheap at $0.99.
